Nas’ presence in the hip-hop industry is unprecedented. He almost wrote the book on making hip-hop music, but he published it through music. His debut album, Illmatic, has influenced a generation full of rappers. Released in 1994, Illmatic is Nas' debut album, which is revered as one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time. The album peaked at number 2 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and number 12 on the Billboard 200 chart. The record spawned Nas’ colossal hits, “Halftime,” “It Ain’t Hard to Tell,” “The World is Yours,” and “One Love.” Illmatic may not have peaked at number 1, but it became a turning point for the East Coast hip-hop scene. The album contributed to hip-hop revival in New York, Nas’ hometown. Illmatic still holds much relevance in modern hip-hop. Moreover, Rolling Stone ranked the album at 44 in the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. In 2020, Nas released his 12th studio album, King’s Disease, which earned him a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album. The record performed remarkably on the Billboard 200 chart, peaking at number 5.
Hip-hop supergroup, the Wu-Tang Clan, has made waves in the industry with their debut album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). The album was considered a sleeper hit, peaking on the charts two years after release. Enter the Wu-Tang helped cement these East Coast Rappers as an influential rap group. The nine members of the Wu-Tang Clan comprise Ghostface Killah, Method Man, RZA, GZA, Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Raekwon, and Cappadonna.
